- The U.S. Army’s Lancer Brigade showed off a video from its new Enhanced Night Vision Goggle-Binoculars.
- The ENVG-B displays a higher-resolution image than previous night vision devices.
- The goggles also include augmented reality capabilities and allow soldiers to see wirelessly through weapon sights.
A new thermal imaging system being developed for the US Army Laboratory by physicist Dr Kristan Gurton and electronics engineer Sean Hu uses polarized infrared light to reveal details like facial features. The technology will allow soldiers to pick out details such as tripwires, booby traps, buried landmines, mortars and UAVs in flight – even in total darkness.
